      A clarification is probably needed for my first comment. It was not meant in any way to imply that Paul is a con aritist. I realized later that my last line there could certainly come across that way. My apologies to Paul if it did.

      Hmmm . . . .

      Before coming here I was thinking this might be about how, in 2 Cor 11<—the funniest sarcasm-driven chapter in the Bible, that I sometimes read when depressed, (you know – how Paul was apauled that the Cors seemed to even *like* legalistic abusive false-teachers but thought he was a boring lecturer & what-not) . . . .

      But, well, anyways, at least the vid is Pauline.
      And pretty funny too, rofl

      Hey, folks. I just stumbled upon this post. I didn’t realize till just now that Mike Patton had put this up at Parchment and Pen. Thanks for all of your comments.

      For some background, this video was put together by students at my university, PBAU. They do this occasionally with professors, and they wanted to do a spin-off from A&E’s “Intervention” show—hence the PBA&E Intervention! I do have a reputation for punning. Speaking of “Pauline” puns, a group of us faculty were meeting with Alvin Plantinga back in October, and one of my colleagues (an OT professor) brought up Joseph’s coat of many colors and kidded about Paul wearing a coat of pastel colors on his missionary journeys. I jumped in to support this notion; he *was* the apastel Paul, after all. This drew a nice round of laughter from all, including Plantinga himself. Plantinga later encouraged me in my punning by noting that Shakespeare himself utilized puns aplenty in his works. (Just think: if old Will had been an Indian, he would have done a Punjabi on everyone!)

      Blessings to you all!
